Does PUWER prescribe what work equipment must be used or what measures must be taken by an employer?

No. In line with the EC Work Equipment Directive, PUWER does not, in general, prescribe measures to be taken by an employer but places the onus on the employer to ensure that all work equipment is appropriate for its intended purpose and is safe to use.
